Zimbabwean youngster Michael Ndiweni made his Premier League debut against Chelsea in Saturday's 4-1 win at St James Park stadium.
Ndiweni replaced Anthony Gordon in the 92nd minute.

Ndiweni was named on the Newscastle United's first team sheet as he has been with the senior squad.

The 19-year-old, who joined Newcastle in 2016, was born in England to Zimbabwean parents and is eligible to play for Zimbabwe. His father coaches youth football in Newcastle.

Michael's little brother, Ryan, is part of the Newcastle United Under 18 set-up.

Ndiweni has been appearing in the match day squad for sometime.

He was called up after the club lost a number of options in the attack and failed to make cover-up signings in the January transfer window.
